About Mike

Mike gets all the racing games because he understands that stuff even though he doesn't drive.


There must be something in the water lately. Another lone developer effort has landed on my lap. This time around, Broken Mind is the game in question. Coming from 2Bad Games, this 5-year passion project has finally hit the Playstation 4. It’s a dark budget horror that, whilst it doesn’t […]

Broken Mind – PS4 Review


With the democratising of games development, it’s nice to see more solo developers get off the ground. Wreck Tangle Games is a one-person studio that’s looking to mix bedtime stories with horror. The result is Quintus and the Absent Truth, a visually appealing title that does somewhat suffer from a […]

Quintus and the Absent Truth – PS5 Review



Indie platformers are a dime a dozen and it can be hard to sort the diamonds from the rough. Especially if they don’t initially appear to stand out visually or heavily lean on a gameplay hook. Still, I enjoy a good one and Guin Entertainment’s hoping to provide with Adventures […]

Destroy All Humans! is a series I’ve never delved into but their homage to the 50’s B-movie aesthetic did seem charming. Since their heyday on the Playstation 2, THQ Nordic has acquired the rights in an effort to bring some attention back to the murderous grey invaders. Before the repackage […]

I don’t think I’ve seen a motorsport as unpredictable as MotoGP in the last couple of years. Even without the pandemic, Marc Márquez’s self-inflicted arm injury has led to a genuine power vacuum at the top of motorcycle racing. Combine this with Valentino Rossi’s retirement and you have a grid […]

MotoGP 22 – PS5 Review


The Playstation Talents initiative has managed to steer itself away from some dubious quality. Whilst I do appreciate student projects will have limitations, these are commercial products that are sold for money. The latest to cross my path is TAPE: Unveil the Memories. Coming from Madrid’s Black Chili Goat Studio, […]

TAPE: Unveil the Memories – PS4 Review


Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein has seen countless adaptations since it’s publication over 200 years ago. It’s fairly common fodder to discuss existentialism, what it is to be human and play God. Even when not being directly quoted, it has been the inspiration for many, many stories from many different people. Today, […]
